What is MCT Oil?
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are a special type of fatty acids that are metabolized more fully for energy in the body. Normal fats and oils contain long-chain fatty acids (LCTs). When compared to these fatty acids, MCTs are much shorter in length thus resembling carbohydrates more than fat. As a result, they are more quickly absorbed by the body and metabolized as fuel. Because of this quick metabolism, the calories in MCTs are very efficiently converted into fuel for immediate use in the mitochondria, instead of being stored as fat. Our MCT Oil has become a staple product in the lives of hard working professionals, athletes, students, and high performers across America.
What are the benefits of MCT Oil?
- Provides instant energy for your brain without raising blood sugar levels.
MCTs have been shown to enhance thermogenesis (heat production) in the body, thereby promoting the burning of fat.
Contains 4x more ketones for instant energy than regular coconut oil.
MCTs contain fewer calories than LCTs, are metabolized quicker and actually contribute to an enhanced metabolism to burn even more calories!
Supports cognitive health and performance.
Supports healthy digestion.
- Supports healthy immune function.
MCT Oil For Weight Loss and Hunger Suppressant
When you take MCT oil, these fatty acids enter the liver from the digestive tract, where they may be turned into ketone bodies.
According to some studies, ketone bodies can have an appetite-reducing effect, aiding in weight loss.
One study reported that people who ate breakfasts supplemented with medium-chain triglycerides ate significantly fewer calories at lunch. Another study looked at the effects of medium- and long-chain triglycerides. It found that those who ate the most medium-chain triglycerides consumed, on average, 256 fewer calories per day.
How do I use MCT Oil?
Our favorite use for MCT Oil is to blend it with coffee to make a delicious morning brain food that increases focus for hours.
MCT Oil can also be used as a substitute for conventional oils in salad dressings, sauces or cooking as a source of beneficial fatty acids.
It is not recommended for use in frying due to its low boiling point. Consume raw for best results.
